Girls' Night In

Good morning,

On a beautiful early spring type of day when it was warm and sunny during the day and cold at night, my daughter, Catherine, and I had a Girls' Night In.  

We treasure our days at home when we can enjoy the house and garden. We like having big family dinners when Dad is home (my honey was in Finland for a few days on a business trip this day) and all three of the kids and their kids are here, but this was not the case this time.

This was just a relaxing mother-daughter Girls' Night In.  Links to the recipes are below.


In the morning before she went to her office Catherine made cabbage rolls in the crock pot. The aroma was wonderful all day and the dinner that night was terrific.


I went outside to enjoy the sunshine and pull some weeds from around the emerging flowers


while I had some bread started in the kitchen.


I made my egg bread and divided the two loaf recipe into a large standard loaf, a round loaf and six buns.


Nice Buns!  Grab Some Today!  ;-)


The round loaf at the top left was to give to a neighbor who lives alone, the standard loaf top right was for our family tomorrow.  The six buns accompanied those cabbage rolls.


Everything we make in our kitchen is Lab Tested.  Here is the Lab Testing Department.  :-)

It was a lovely day and evening, but it is always nice when the rest of the family can be here, too.

Oh, my Gosh! You didn't tell me you are a Lab person! I have owned at least one Lab ever since 1985. They are the ONLY dog in the world!

Right now I have Molly, a black Lab that doesn't know she is a dog and you better not call her a dog to her face!!!

Hi Sherry,

I agree about the Labs! They are just the most wonderful "people" and are so helpful!

I helped Erik clean our fish pond a couple of weeks ago:

I look forward to seeing pictures of Molly, too. :)

Very best,
Lois

Love the Lab tasting department!! Your evening with your daughter looks wonderful. Nothing like doing something with your kids. Either one on one or in a group. It is so much fun. Your food looks delicious. I love cabbage rolls! Your buns were beautiful. So fat...I drool as I look at them....debbie

Hi Debbie,

Thanks so much. Food is a problem here - we all like to cook and we all like to eat - much too much!
